Sinopsis:

Set in in contemporary Pakistan, London and Egypt, Zarrie Bano is a glamorous 28 year-old daughter of a wealthy Muslim landowner, Habib Khan. When his only son is killed in a freak riding accident, Habib decides to make Zarri his heiress, resurrecting an ancient tradition which decrees that an heiress must remain celibate, and forcing his daughter into marriage to the Holy Koran.

Críticas: "A lean, lyrical meditation on tradition and independence, sensuality and sacrifice, set against the mortal background of modern day Pakistan, Shahraz's debut beguiles throughout." -The Times"Stunning debut novel. An intricate study of love, family, politics and sacrifice." - Eastern Eye'Qaisra Shahraz has a real story-telling gift ...' - Sue Gee'...very moving tale of love, passion and Islamic traditions...difficult to put down...compelling read' - BBC National Asian Network'...a remarkable new novel' - Asian News'A dramatic story of family intrigue, religious passions and riproaring romance' - Michele Roberts'Intriguing tale of love, envy and jealousy ... Compulsive reading... Must not be missed ... A definite hit ...' - Asian Times
